The sweet video clips showed how Joe supported Stacey during the birth before the happy family enjoy the first moments of their newest arrival, the Mirror Online reports.

The videos start with Stacey sharing a snap of her in a hospital bed, with monitors strapped to her baby bump, as her soon-to-be born daughter was checked over by midwives.

Stacey captioned the pic: "I woke up feeling a little twingey so I went to check in on her. She seemed happy as Larry and the contractions weren’t too strong, so I went home…"

It would be a decision that she would then question, as she writes on the next clip: "Seriously regretted not staying in hospital and getting an epidural."
